Holding pressure questions

picked up 3 used kegs last week from my LHBS. all 3 were presurized. Was planning on cleaning/sanitizing them and replacing all the Orings tomorrow. I just noticed 2 still have pressure, one does not.

  1. does that mean the orings are bad? Or some other leak?


More than likely it’s a an o-ring seal or a bad poppet, but I have seen an instance with a buddy that had a small pin hole in the keg itself.

Pressurize the keg and spray Star San or soapy water around the lid and connectors and I’m sure you’ll find the leak.

Cheers, my friend.
